Jay Hinkie Memory Tree

March 28, 2018


A tree was planted on the grounds of the Silsbee Elementary School to honor the memory of Assistant Fire Chief Jay Hinkie of the Silsbee Volunteer Fire Department. The plaque reads: In Loving Memory of a Fallen Hometown Hero, Assistant Fire Chief Jay Hinkie, Born: July 11, 1956; Last Alarm: August 2, 2017. Firefighter Hinkie was killed while providing traffic control at the scene of a rollover accident on Highway 418 last summer. Jay Hinkie taught hundreds of students over the years in the Silsbee Independent School system and was loved by many children as the Fire Prevention Officer.
